THE Hastings Valley Vikings will send a team to contest the Crescent Head Rugby Sevens competition tomorrow.
The 2014 Mid North Coast premiers will mix it amongst illustrious company with many Sydney-based teams and sides consisting of Shute Shield players competing.
The Vikings will make up one of the 32 sides that will play in the event including 10 women's teams.
Clubs from as far away as Melbourne and the Sunshine Coast will make the trip to compete in the tournament's 12th year.
One player excited about making his appearance on the paddock is the Vikings' new signing, Robbie Glen.
Glen arrived from Scotland last year where he played for Walcha, having secured a contract with the team.
The massive forward from Dalry, just outside Glasgow, said it was a fantastic life experience and is looking forward to what Port Macquarie and the Vikings has to offer.
"Where I grew up it was just outside Glasgow," he said.
"So I've never lived in a small country town like Walcha.
"It was great working on the farms and driving around in utes."
It was during a visit to Port Macquarie while living in Walcha where Glen ran into a number of Vikings players who urged the Scot to sign on to play.
"You can tell its a great club,"?he said.
"It's very family orientated and I was excited to be able to sign on to play.
"They are all a good bunch of guys and I think they will have a strong first grade side.
"I'm looking forward to playing this weekend to show them what I can do on the field."
James Lancaster, who is on the organising committee for the competition, urged anyone interested in rugby to make the trip to Crescent Head.
"It will be worth it," he said.
"With the calibre of teams coming it will be the highest grade of rugby seen in the area for some time."
The newly formed Wauchope Thunder will also feature at the event.
The Port Macquarie Pirates on the other hand have opted not to nominate a side this year.
Rugby action kicks off at 8am with the men's final expected to be played at 6.30pm.
Full canteen facilities will be available with a $5 entry fee per car.
